* BackForTheFinale: The Master, having not been seen for three years, returns to face the Doctor again. This is the final classic story, but far from the last time they'll meet.


After adventuring throughout time and space, Ace finally asks the Doctor to take a visit to her hometown -- Perivale.[[note]]Not to be confused with Peri Brown or misconstrued as the home of Peri Brown that happens to have a MeaningfulName- number one, she's an American who obviously did not grow up in an English burg, number two, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS23E4TheUltimateFoe she's currently with King Ycranos...]] [[ContinuitySnarl well, in at least one continuity.]] [[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* HealItWithWater: Karra, injured, is healed by water that Ace brings her.


As it turns out, not much is the same since Ace left the town originally and many of her friends have just up and left. The Doctor, however, takes a curious interest in a black cat that seems to be following them around, and while he tries to set a trap for it Ace finds herself poking around a playground when an [[CatFolk anthropomorphic cheetah-person]] riding a horse chases her around the park. Not long after this scene, the Doctor and Ace are whipped away to an [[BBCQuarry exotic alien planet]] where the Cheetah people come from - and where Ace's friends and a few other extras have been whipped away to. The Doctor is then escorted to the Cheetah people's leader... the Master. And this time, he's acting [[CerebusSyndrome very darkly.]] That's what happens when you're allowed to cut loose for the final serial and portray the character as you originally intended without a heaping helping of {{Camp}} thrown in to belay complaints that the show is getting too violent for its britches, since, by now, it really doesn't matter, does it?

** As WebVideo/SFDebris pointed out, it is ironic that the last story to be broadcast before the series was cancelled was called "Survival".

* RearingHorse

to:

* RearingHorseRearingHorse: The horse the cheetah rides. Note: During filming, the stunt man couldn't get the horse to rear, or do anything else, but the actress playing Karra could. It turned out that the horse hated men.

* DisneyDeath: The Doctor has a head on collision on a motorbike with the enemy, resulting in a huge explosion which we see nobody escape from. Ace begins to mourn his death after she finds his hat and his umbrella laying on the ground. We soon after find out he's somehow just ended up face first in a pile of rubbish with his backside in the air.

Added DiffLines:

* FightingInThePlayground: There's a chase scene through a playground, with the quarry going over and through the rides in an attempt to shake off the pursuer.


The Master makes one last appearance, and this time Anthony Ainley was finally allowed to play the character in a more understated way. Ace is also extremely well developed for an old-series companion, culminating the final part of her [[Recap/DoctorWhoS26E2GhostLight three part]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS26E3TheCurseOfFenric story arc]].

Added DiffLines:

* SexyCatPerson: Not as much as the writer originally envisaged, but Ace's interactions with the Cheetah People are heavily played as a sexual awakening.


** AdaptationExpansion: ''Several!'' You can go the divergent route of the Virgin New Adventures, which are DarkerAndEdgier and play out the Cartmel Masterplan, or take a look at the Big Finish Audios, which are considered part of the same timeline for the Seventh Doctor as the television series. And if neither of those tickle your fancy, there is "Death Comes to Time", which slams the book on the Seventh Doctor a bit harshly.
